Birthday Book Program

The Birthday Book Program is a great way to share the love of reading by donating books to the ACS Library in celebration of your child’s, your spouse’s, or a teacher or friend’s birthday. Our library is enhanced by these lasting birthday remembrances. In order to ensure that donated books will not be duplicates, a list of books that the school needs or which students and teachers have requested is provided below.

A nameplate is placed in the “Birthday Book” with the individual’s name and year of donation. Children are delighted to have a book in the library that carries their name and often recommend it to their friends.

Participation in this program is strictly voluntary. Receipts are available upon request.
